comment Can you witch bolt the bad guy you're grappling?
@Killer_Kelly, the thing is the spell is only has a 30' range versus the typical movement rate so pinning down the target is useful. It may not be this method but you are on the right track.

comment Do magic items really cost at least as much to create as they do to purchase?
@PurpleVermont, I did get into specifics "I find this somewhat ludicrous as a they also state on page 157 of the PHB that an aristocratic lifestyle can cost 10 gp per day." There are other items like the cost to craft an item, etc. But I felt I got my point across.

@PurpleVermont because the pricing in the DMG do not make sense in terms of the assumptions they laid out. It is obvious they were biased towards the idea that Magic item are special and the rules of even D&D 5e economics don't apply. What usually happens is the players will pick up on the inconsistency and for a few it impact their enjoyment of the game.

comment Stealthing and hiding
@DCShannon correct. You get the following in a round of combat. 1 Action, 1 Bonus Action, 1 Reaction, 1 Interaction. You can't freely exchange Bonus Actions with Actions. What allows the Rogue the choice is the fact Hide is a actions for all characters but the Rogue has a class feature that allows him take a Hide Action as a bonus action.

comment Can I get creatures stuck in the ground with Mirage Arcana + Illusory Reality?
@SevenSidedDie I going to have to disagree otherwise the authors would have written the spell similar to Hallucinatory Terrain with a larger AOE. Consider that other illusion spell are able to make "real" effects like the 5th level spell Creation. Could it be clearer sure but the wording indicates that Mirage Arcane isn't just a Hallucinatory Terrain with a larger area of effect. But a temporary alteration of terrain within the limits of the spell.
